built in or built under single oven?

i'm confused by the terms above.
can anyone tell me if i could fit this oven under the worktop, and not
in a full height cabinet?

Whether you fit it in an under worktop unit or a full height unit is a matter of personal preference and kitchen layout. I have never come across an oven designed specifically for one but not the other.

Built under goes under a worktop. Built in may be the same, but is more general as what it is built into doesn't need to be under the worktop.

Yes - it will go under the worktop - this is the one I was going to buy for my kitchen. It is an easy for for the B&Q oven housing unit.

I'd go further and say that conventionally "built under" normally refers to an oven/fridge/dishwasher etc which stands on the floor beneath a worktop, in between two units; whereas "built in" refers to an oven (usually) which is installed *within* a unit/housing.
Suppliers often don't get it though (eg on some of the online outlets where you can search for appliances by category like "stainless steel" "built-in" "built-under" etc frequently seem to get the terms muddled...
